of michigan, now an msnbc contributor, and the author of a brand-new book "a governor's story." and bob strum is an economic strategist. i want you to listen to this. clinton strategist mark penn who worked for the clintons said, "obama's new tone won't work." he writes, "barack obama is careening down the wrong path towards re-election. he should be claiming the vital center, not abandoning it. he should be holding down taxes rather than raising them. he should be bringing the country together rather than dividing it through class warfare." that's mark penn. he's critiquing the president's new move to divide the country between those who want fair taxes and those who are rich, who don't. your thoughts, bob shrum? >> well, you know, that's marcus saying this kind of stuff all the time. two reactions to it. first, it was a remarkably fact-free and numbers-free piece from a guy who's supposed to be a pollster. he says, for example, that gore lost -- i actually think he won -- but that gore lost because he was too the populist. he talked about the people, not the powerful. in fact, during the pe

forfeited their jobs and will be terminated. there are cities in michigan -- oh, shut up. [ cheers and applause ] >> you know, firing those air traffic controllers, i'm pro union, was what sent the word to moscow this guy was real. >> yeah. >> i absolutely know that as a fact. they got over there and said he's got steel in his spine, look out. i think when i met reagan one time, i was working for speaker o'neill and weren't exactly in friendly territory. i felt i was meeting jimmy cagney, not jimmy stewart. a little tough guy from the street, you've got it. it's what people like in the fighter they got on their side. >> if you look at opening of the debate last night when they paraded the seven dwarves and the candidates come out. perry's body, his chest is stuck out, he's like this. he's ready for a fight, and i just think republicans, they don't -- the mitt romney, doesn't matter what he says. romney did a great job last night. >> yeah. >> and when romney tries to fight, kind of like when obama tries to fight, it's not who he is. once again, who is the one republican president of

, in north philadelphia, in detroit michigan, in miami, florida, in norfolk, virginia, this is a numbers game. if in fact minority votes are disenfranchised or opressed, that means that those people probably would not be able to vote obviously, presumably for the democratic candidate. that's what the white house is concerned about, and rightfully so. >> michael, last point on this. do you think they have any case about corrupt voting? we have that problem a couple years back. is there -- let's be honest here. is there any concern that's real about crooked voting, by phantom voting, people driving around in cars, making sure people aren't voting, that old-style stuff that went on back in the '60s. still going on? >> i think there are always a handful of cases. when you have millions voting there are bowen to be shenanigans, but i've yet to hear a case that warrants the level of overhaul that's americans. >>> here's the president in the interview with you today. he also talked about tax increases for the wealthy. let's take a look. >> there are wealthy americans who i think are patriots and are

of pennsylvania. there is kelly retiring this year from michigan. these people have been around for so long. they just love this stuff. look at h. it hasn't changed in years. reverend sharpton, this is the good old boy system we are watching but it not terribly unhealthy if they do something in the rituals, besides enjoy the presence in that chamber. >> i would hope they are reaching out to the american people like they are reaching out to the president. i think the real problem is, when you look at that 13% approval rating of congress. i think that we have to use that leverage, the public, that's why we were speaking earlier about that, there must be a real movement that goes down on those that block what is in our judgment the ability to create jobs. the fear, i think, comes from the fact that they are so -- and if we really started challenging and organizing in some of the key districts that are swing districts, i think that you can begin to create a climb that the president may not be able to create on his own. i think he has to give us enough to warrant -- to do that, he has it give en
